**A humorous southern mystery**  WINNER of the 2012 Write Touch Readers' Award for Mainstream with Romantic Elements **** "Though much of the book is light-hearted and occasionally outright hilarious, the author sneaks in a few home truths along the way that will hit you where it counts, like how even someone's best intentions can box you in." --Everybody Needs a Little Romance **** "This was one of those books that I kept telling myself one more page, then I need to put it down. Instead I found myself tearing through the book instead, needing to know the outcome." --Just Jump Book Reviews****For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She's had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone's toilet's overflowed, but she's never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.Rose realizes she's wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She's well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won't help with number fifteen-- do more with a man. Joe's new to town, but it doesn't take a vision for Rose to realize he's got plenty secrets of his own. Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they'll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn't her biggest worry after all.*****Winner of The Beacon - 2010 Unpublished Division, Mainstream Category Twenty-Nine and a Half Reasons (June 29, 2012)

5.0 Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!! I have to say that it is quite rare for me to read something and not expect who had really done it in the end, so this was sort of a pleasant surprise for me. And while the final reveal did not really make me gasp in surprise, the rest of the book more than made up for...

I didn’t know anything about saving anybody. I didn’t even know where to go, let alone have a car to get there. But I did have a gun, even if I’d never shot one before. I unwrapped it, careful to point it away from me. I couldn’t find the round spinny thing for the bullets. Then I remembered, those ...

Everything about Swank's writing, from the mystery to the characters, just sucked me right into the novel. It was so engrossing that I had started reading I couldn't stop until I was finished. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
